About Analytics & Film Funding
How do you get someone to invest in your film? Successful investors like to look at the numbers. So how do you get credible numbers for your original production? The answer lies in analyzing "Comps"--financial data for comparable films. The industry has changed dramatically in recent years, and comp analysis now needs to cover not just the theatrical market, but also physical and digital video sales; kiosk, online and pay-per-view video rentals; traditional TV markets and streaming subscription services, all for domestic and international markets. Armed with this crucial information a producer can make better decisions regarding the budget, casting, distribution channels, marketing and overall viability of a film project.
